GREETINGS

The elections are finally over but the people didn’t have their say.  We really don’t have a civil way of electing officials these days.  In the end the popular vote doesn’t count and I for one want to change this.  Neither candidate were liked one disliked more than the other. Let us hope that all the freedoms for everyone that we have fought for will not be taken away.

Winter is showing itself in the woods behind the farm.  Every tree but the mighty Oak have shed their leaves and a  cold wind comes off the mountain now.

VETERANS DAY

My Dad was a soldier in World War 2.  I will always be proud of him.  He was in China, Burma and India.  It was not easy but he served his country proudly and honorably.  Happy Veterans Day to all who have served and now serve.  We honor you.

MASSACHUSETTS DEB RELIEF

Last Saturday night I was honored to attend a dinner for The Massachusetts Debt Relief Foundation in Springfield.   My Son-in-law, Richard Ravosa Esquire started this a few years ago and my daughter Cynthia Ravosa  works alongside him helping people in Massachusetts with low incomes get out of debt.  This work is non-profit and provides pro bono bankruptcy representation.  These days it is so easy to get into debt.  One major illness can do it.  I am proud that my family can help these people in many ways.

I am also so proud of my daughter Cindy, she received the news that she has passed the bar and will be sworn in sometime this month.  Its been a long haul but worth it

CRAFTS OF COLRAIN TOUR

It’s that time of year again folks, and I have been busy making all sorts of wonderful things.  This year I was suppose to be at the Brick Meeting House in the center of town.  Unfortunately the repairs on the place have not been finished and I am hoping that next year things will be done.  I will be at my son’s house on 4 High Street.  There is easier parking and no stairs and hopefully the sheep will come out of the barn for your viewing pleasure.  Be sure and give Maude a wave, she has recently had eye surgery and loves people.  Come visit me I would love to see you.  I will have lots of Salve and many balsam products and so much more.img_7299

Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope to see you this weekend.  Carole
